How small can a computer become? Silicon transistors, the essential building block of most modern electronic devices, cannot shrink much further without being rendered inoperable. But, if we harness quantum mechanics, we could build a quantum computer. Dr. Simmons will discuss how quantum technologies will fundamentally change our lives, and provide a snapshot of the accelerating worldwide race to build a prototype.
